Para-Chem Southern



Press Release Excerpt

We are pleased to announce that Brookwood Associates advised the shareholders of Para-Chem Southern, Inc. (“Para-Chem”) on the sale of the Company to Royal Adhesives and Sealants, a portfolio company of Arsenal Capital Partners. Para-Chem is a leading national provider of technically-formulated chemical solutions including acrylic polymers and coatings, surfactants and flooring adhesives with a high level of customer service and production flexibility.

This transaction highlights Brookwood’s senior-focused and consultative approach to developing meaningful partnerships with its clients. Following the completion of an assessment of strategic alternatives, Brookwood served on the Board of Advisors of this second-generation family company to help the Company drive growth and increase value. In 2009 Brookwood aided the Company in refinancing the business and finally advised on this liquidity event for the family shareholders in late 2010.

This transaction yielded attractive results for all of Para-Chem’s stakeholders including excellent value and terms for the shareholders and new opportunities for the management team in the form of a valuable partner focused on accelerating growth.
